I have began to have unprotected sex for the first time this past month and a half or so since I began to take my birth control pill. At first I was sore for a while because of lack of lubrication; now we use water based lube everytime and when it feels dry we reapply. I'm concerned that I may have a semen allergy because when he comes inside me I will experience very slight burning and sore sensation just on the outside of my vaginal wall. Never inside though. I'm not sure if this is it or if we need more foreplay to provide natural lubrication. I have had semen on other parts of ky body and never felt itchy or burning there. I'm just wondering if my birth control is still causing dryness that calls for more lubrication or if I have an allergy.

Well, oral contraceptives often will cause some vaginal dryness. that's why, while lube is often wanted or needed by many, if not most, people, it's extra important for people using the pill.
Can I ask: are you using lube RIGHT from the start, and also ONLY engaging in activities with vaginal entry well after you are already very aroused? Just trying to rule out the more common issue, and larger possibility, given the relative rareness of semen allergies, that what you're feeling is about friction or about having any liquid on your genitals when they're already a bit raw.
